Rokicki 718 N.W.2d 333 (Ill.App. 1999) Facts of Case: In 1995, a man named Kenneth Rokicki ate at a Pizza Hut restaurant where he was served by a homosexual. Rokicki demanded that the server not touch his food because of his sexual orientation. When the server began to slice Rokicki’s pizza, Rokicki walked over and yelled extensively at the server with multiple homosexual slurs while pounding his fist on the counter and waving his finger at the server. Rokicki waved his right to a jury and was sentenced to two years probation and 100 hours of community service during a bench trial.
